Owner description: The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the custodian of the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London. The memorial has been built to be modern, yet classical, in Portland stone. At its heart are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew. Within the memorial, the space is open to the sky with an opening designed to allow light to fall directly onto sculptures of the aircrew.

“A fitting memorial for Bomber Command at last.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

A fitting ,long overdue in our opinion,memorial to the brave airmen of Bomber Command. The faces on the statues brought me to tears as they reflect the sadness and suffering on all sides. We should always remember them and that they gave their lives for all of our todays.

“ONE OF THE BEST MEMORIALS IN LONDON”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Had to visit this memorial and pay my respects and thanks to the airmen of world war 2. It was so moving to read some of the letters and card left. Situated in Green Park, a fitting place.
It is just a pity that it took so long to erect. Something everyone should see along with Battle of Britain memorial on the Embankment
